I don't have the game but the best thing to do from a video on youtube run it in compatibility mode [Windows Vista service Pack 1]

Uninstall GFWL (if it's even installed)
Install the latest GFWL Client from here[www.xbox.com]
Try again

Many people seem to think they didn't need to install the GFWL client because it is already included in Windows 8 but that's not true. It is required.

If ^that does not work, uninstall GFWL, delete its settings folder and install it again
That worked for me.

But GFWL is very awkward software and sometimes it fixes itself somehow after multiple times of totally not working

You have to have it games for windows, i have the same problem however it doesnt let me log into games for windows, so its like an infinite loop.

Download Games for Windows Live from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=201134 and then Right Click the downloaded file and choose programs. Put a tick in Windows 7 Compatibility and Run as adminstrator. That will get GFWL working and bring up overlay in-game. To bad Microsoft doesn't officially support this...

This is how I have gotten this to work for me.

Bump.

I got wondows 8 and everything works for me, although I did need to reinstall GFWL on another game that was giving me trouble. That probably fixed this game before I even tried it out.
